A Kahala shirt makes you feel good. It’s that simple. Our artwork reflects the vibrancy of Hawai’i and the spirit of aloha. We carry a bit of the Waikiki beach boy spirit in our hearts, surf when the waves are good and never turn down an adventure.
Founded in Honolulu, Hawai’i in 1936 by George Brangier and Nat Norfleet, Kahala is the oldest operating apparel company in Hawai‘i and the first brand to manufacture aloha shirts. We are family owned, community minded and committed to manufacturing the majority of our collection locally. After all, an aloha shirt made here in Hawai’i means something special.
Continuing our tradition of innovation in art and fabrics, we’ve launched exciting new products including our Collector’s Edition – a limited series of aloha shirts featuring iconic 1940s heritage prints, as well as collaborations with guest artists, designers, and community partners, each with a distinct perspective of life in Hawaii. We hope you’ll join us in discovering the original aloha shirt since 1936.
